Christopher Nowicki has lived in Wroclaw, Poland for the last eighteen years works as Professor of Printmaking at the Eugenusza Gepperta Academy of Fine Art in Wroclaw. Chris has curated exhibitions of Polish Printmaking in Scotland, USA, Romania, Greece South Korea and China. During the summer Chris works with Native Americans in Alaska printing traditional their Northwest Coast Native designs in limited edition serigraph prints.
My exhibition with Marta Kubiak and Malgorzata Warlikowska at Gallery Zajezdnia in Lublin, Poland was a huge success. The opening was attended by many people including well known Polish printmakers Krzysztof Szymanowicz and Grzegorz Mazurek.
The opening was on March 23rd and will only be shown for one week. The exhibition was organized and curated by Prof. Artur Popek and Dr. Annamaria Weiser who both teach in the Printmaking Department at the Marie Curie-Sklodowska University in Lublin. Each are well known printmakers in their own right.
The beautiful city of Lublin is a nine hour train ride from Wroclaw and is the largest Polish city east of the Visla River and has about 350,000 people. It is an important cultural and educational center. Annamaria and Artur are really great people and it was nice to be able to spend some time with them seeing Lublin and drinking dark Kozel beer in the local Czech Restaurant.
I really look forward to visiting Lublin in the future and recommend it to anyone traveling in Eastern Poland.
